Strongly influenced by AirBnB, Portland city council proposes a new Short Term Rental Regulation that would permit homeowners to rent out 1-2 bedrooms in their home to short term guests.  The caveat is that the owner must live in the property!  Currently short term rentals are not allowed in residential zones in Portland.  This loosens those regulations but only for the AirBnB model of renting portions of a home, not whole units.

What do you think about this?
